They don't offer NIS anymore, how do I buy more years?

They don't offer NIS anymore, how do I buy more years?

I use the 2013 version, I HATE the "online vault".

How do I buy more years to extend my subscription, or will they force me to use a newer product?

The online vault is Norton's clever way of forcing you to be a "Loyal" customer. You trust them to hold your data and if you decide not to pay-up, you risk losing your access to your data. This company has come a long way from what it started as.

er' what ?  How would I loose my data.  If I decide not to pay up (to use your words).  Then I retain the Toolbar for free with access to my data.  Besides, I have a backup of my data.  How do I loose my data....?
I have Local Vault with NIS 21.6 and plan to retain Local when I have to migrate to NS or I'll just use another password manager.  No biggy.

Hello wagygirl

If you are currently using local vault, you can continue to use the local vault. Just say no if they ask you if you want to go to the online vault. If you can find a NIS in a store, then you can just install the new key.

Please see this thread on how to keep the local vault.

Re: They don't offer NIS anymore, how do I buy more years?

Gosh, Your right !!

All these people complaining about the forced migration to the on line vault don't have a clue. We should just ignore the constant badgering from Norton, the lack of Norton customer support for local vaults, the fact that the new versions of Norton don't have the option........Why call Norton for support when we can get advice on this forum. In the future I will seek out obsolete, non-supported software and look to these forums for a clever work around.

If you can't find NIS in a store or from a reputable source such as Amazon cheaper than the renewal price from Norton direct, check out

http://www.buycheapsoftware.com/symantec_products~subcategory~206.asp 

which is a reputable source that I've used in the past. The link is to the Download version of the 2014 release so don't download and install it; just use the new key to extend your subscription. Doing this with a new key wipes out any unexpired time so the simplest thing is to wait until a day or two before the present subscription expires and enter the new Key then.

BTW Make sure the setting in NIS for Automatic Download of new Version is disabled in Settings / Computer / Updates (in 2014) or where ever it is in your version. It doesn't automatically change your version but it does download the files which is a waste of time and bandwidth.


PS

I'm sure you would enjoy the group of live webcams on Explore.org which deal with raising and training service dogs, especially the ServiceDogProject where a Great Dane is about to produce a new litter. Because of their height Danes are wonderful for helping people with balance problems! There are also some Lab sites .....

I don't want to use the online vault as they have already been hacked on several servers. I prefer to keep my info safe on my own.

Is Norton Security the same as NIS, does it have the firewall etc.? Will it force me to use the hated vault?

Re: They don't offer NIS anymore, how do I buy more years?

When you pay for your Norton anti-virus update, part of that money is used for support services and software upgrades. I really don't see the sense in seeking  out-of-date, obsolete software and paying a subscription price for updates and support that I can't use. Microsoft offers free anti-virus software and I guess I could just keep a sharp pencil and sheet of paper to back-up my passwords. Vault?  Who needs a vault when you can use a shoebox. Based on this discussion,, I'm considering an upgrade to a TRS-80. I found that there aren't many viruses that attack that model computer and my little list of passwords should work fine.

Thank you for your guidance.

I got a message rejected because I had not checked a non-obligatory box in the reply editor and lost the text. That Autosave function did work to bring back my text (thank goodness) but posting was and is very sluggish for me...

When you get the popup Autosave message it has Cancel which has worked for me when I don't want to use the previously saved text and after a recovery from Autosave it should stop offering the recover. Perhaps closing the Forum and or rebooting your computer would kill anything that is stuck in the system?

Re: They don't offer NIS anymore, how do I buy more years?

Hello wagygirl

Norton Security is almost like NIS. It has the firewall and works basically like before. There are some changes in the program. If you have the local vault on your computer now and install Norton Security on top, it will save most of your settings. It may ask you if you want to go to the online one, just say no. Users who have the local vault on the computer currently are allowed to keep the local vault. However, I would recommend that you back up your local vault and export the CSV and the .dat file types to a safe place like an external drive or pen drive.  You will probably keep getting asked if you want to switch and just say no. Make sure you read the messages and answer them appropriately. Once installed, make sure you run live update until no more updates and then restart when necessary. Import your saved files back and go over the settings. Some settings are worded differently so make sure you read every thing. Any changes you do make, remember to Apply or Save as the case may be.

If you have any days left from your NIS sub, you can chat  with customer support and they will add those days onto your NS subscription once NS is installed and registered. If you have any more questions, we are here. Thanks.

Hello

You can get a renewal of your NIS, but new users can not get it unless they find it in some store or online site. I don't use the vault. I know others still have the local vault and they are on 21.6.0.32.  I don't want to guide you incorrectly, so I will leave that for some one else to answer.

R U running 20.5 or 21.5.....  I suspect you're running 20.5 and you're not upgrading to 21.x because somehow you're bumped to Online.    Only way I can imagine is you click on a prompt to Go Cloud ....
I upgraded to v21 some time back and simply watch for and avoid prompts to Go Cloud or merge or sycn or some such Cloud nonsense.

Hello wagygirl

Newer products are usually safer than older ones. However, your 20.6 version will still update like it has been. I'm not sure without looking at the notices up on top to see if you still get the updated toolbars for Firefox and Chrome. If you are entitled to them, you would have received a patch the other day for Chrome which also had some minor bug fixes for all 3 browsers. What is the version numbers of your toolbar for Firefox and Chrome if you use them?

Hello wagygirl

You could have kept your NIS.


You can get a renewal of your NIS, but new users can not get it unless they find it in some store or online site


I said that on another post on this thread. At some point in the future, it will stop being supported and updated. You could have bought a new NIS and just enter the new key and kept your 20 version.

I'm sorry but if Norton isn't selling or supporting these older platforms, why do these clever work-arounds make sense? If the Norton company refuses to address their clients/subscribers concerns, and the antivirus software doesn't block viruses, isn't that an indication that there are other reasons for Norton to be in this business?

Norton is still supporting the older products like Norton Antivirus, Norton Internet Security and N360. If you can find those products, you can still buy them also. Norton Security is not available every where yet either. The older products will still be supported for a while yet. There has been no announcement about the end of life for the products..

This is a reliable source but I don't know if it will be Version 21.6. Be careful since they offer 1 PC and 3PC versions. If you only have 1 PC then that is a bargain ..... and worth buying a couple of copies? <g>

http://www.buycheapsoftware.com/symantec_products~subcategory~206.asp 

If you buy a boxed disk version it will be the original issue when V21 was first released but the Download version I would expect to be the last release of NIS before replaced with NS. See if others can advise on this.

Remember that buying a retail copy and using the key will wipe out any unused days so wait until a couple of days only are left and then use the Renew / Have Key links.

If in doubt then bite the bullet and RENEW direct from Norton then it will just add the year to your present unused days.

Hello wagygirl

I believe this link will do what you want. If it asks anything about going to the cloud or synch with the cloud, just say no. Read everything that is going on also. Backup and export  your Identity files to a backup drive in case it is needed. Back it up in CSV and .dat file formats. The link I am going to give you usually will update you to the latest version in the same year. I hope it will work and give you the latest version of a different year's version also.

http://norton.com/latestnis

This link should keep your same settings and therefore the local vault. I assume your subscription is still good. You may have to enter in your key, so make sure you have that ready just incase. Remember to run live update until there are no more updates Restart when requested to. You may want to wait and have this procedure verified by someone else before you try it. You might have to run the installer for NIS 21.6, don't know if the link I gave you will do that or not.

Please come back and let us know how you made out.

Thank you floplot for the link.  I was almost ready to give up on Norton's, because I wanted to keep my local vault and it seems Norton's was forcing me to use the cloud.  I just installed the 36.0.4 update from Firefox and then received a note that my Norton Toolbar add-on would no longer work with the newer version.  I was only using NIS 19.9 because of the local vault.  Your link and elsewhere's procedure allowed me to update NIS to 21.7.0.11, so now my Norton Toolbar in Firefox is working again, I have upgraded my NIS and best of all, I still keep my local vault.  Thanks again to all, that found and worked out the work-around.
